A Sweet/Sweaty Weekend
Friday after work I got time to hang out with my best friend Diane and her super sweet pumpkins - they are growing so fast! When I got home I rode the trainer for 30 minutes and then Brian grilled the MOST DELICIOUS ribeye I have ever eaten and we went grocery shopping. Saturday morning I got up and did a few hours of homework and waited for it to get above freezing for my training run. I did 3.1 miles in 45 minutes. When running outside I have to get used to a consistent pace. I started too fast and then struggled in the middle and a little at the end. I haven't run that far all at once since I was pregnant with Erik (20 years ago). After my run I hit the showers and then Brian took me out for Sushi and Crispy Tofu (he knows the way to my heart) and we took the dogs another 3 miles in the afternoon. My legs were HOT by the time we went to bed and I was a little tender Sunday morning. Sunday was more homework (it really ends in 12 more days) and a walk with the dogs through the cemetery in the afternoon. A Wayne State football player died last weekend and it really breaks my heart. He was full of life and opportunity and suddenly snatched from this world by bacterial pneumonia.
